The defrag utility you use must be run on the NAS box. Depending on the vendor, the operating system might be windoze or some flavor of linux built especially for NAS. You'll have contact the vendor or take the shrink wrap off the manual to see if a defrag utility is included and how to use it. If it's simply a windows server, you can use terminal services to access the machine and start the defrag. As far as Diskeeper goes, it ought to be OK an a plain jane windows server but if this is a Windoze powered OEM solution you should again consult the vendor.
